The lady at check-in was funny because since I had asked for a room on a low floor but nothing was available, her response to me was "The lowest floor we available is the 29th, but we are upgrading you to a Presidential Suite, will that be alright?" Ummmm, yes... yes that will be fine.
Walking into the room I felt like the guys from 'The Hangover' with Rihanna's "Live your Life" in the background. The room was huge... 3 bathrooms, 4 TVs, dining area, living area, definitely larger than my apartment. Yes I did use all of the bathrooms and the TVs.

|Loved the view from the bedroom. |
Slept with my curtains open every night!
They did call me the next day to let me know a room was available on a lower floor if I wanted to move. That was super nice of them to call, but I told them I was all set :) Sure I am "that" girl who is a freak and hates elevators, I have no problem with that. But I am not going to be "that" girl who moves out of a huge suite to go to a lower floor. That would be just crazy.
|I'll stick with this view, thanks|

They did tell us that Dave Matthews brings his family there every year. They said he is a super nice guy and will even take out his guitar and play for the guests. This year he did 5 songs, plus one on his ukulele.... I love Dave Matthews Band, so I was obviously eating up every detail they gave :)

Monday night we were at Tao and since it is an Asian restaurant we got fortune cookies after our meal. Everyone was reading their fortunes out loud and the senior vice president of sales from my company was adding "In bed" to the end of each one. Is that appropriate for a business dinner? Probably not, but it sure was funny.
She definitely did not need to add "In bed" to my fortune, it was most definitely implied... "Sex is nobody else's business except the three people involved". Mine was the most risque of the fortunes, so that was not embarrassing at all :)

While in Vegas I did get up two of the mornings to get in a 4 mile run outside before the temperatures went above 100... it was like an oven outside during the day and at night. The mornings were great though, temps right around 75 and it was nice and dry. I am probably the sweatiest person on the planet after a run, but after 4 miles there my shirt was barely wet. Loved it. I ran out of the hotel, went to the left and got to run by the Venetian, Palazzo, Wynn, Encore, Treasure Island, Mirage... I ran all the way down to Circus Circus and Riviera. Vegas is another great place to run in the morning. The streets are not crowded at all and it is fun to see the people still out from the night before.
